2020 London Cobra Show

Save the dates of June 25 – 27, 2020 for the 2020 London Cobra Show (LCS).

This show was originally called the Double Venom Spring Fling (DVSF) and became known as the London Cobra Show in 2005.

2020 will be a special year as it will be the 20th anniversary of the DVSF/ LCS.

Look for an exciting LCS in 2020, so save the dates of June 25 – 27, 2020.

See you in London and it is going to be fun!

Roy from Springboro

2020 LCS Host Hotel

2020 LCS HOST HOTEL
Columbus Marriott Northwest
5605 Blazer Parkway, Dublin, OH 43017

You may make your hotel reservation by calling the Columbus Marriott Northwest hotel at (614) 791-1000 or on-line by clicking going to https://www.marriott.com/event-reser...P&app=resvlink.

When making your hotel reservation, please request the London Cobra Show nightly rate of $119.00 plus tax. This rate applies through June 2, 2020, after that date the special rate will no longer apply and the rate will be whatever the hotel has available. Please reserve your room early so that you will not be disappointed by having to pay a higher nightly rate.

The nightly room rate includes the following:

• Complimentary Parking.
• Complimentary breakfast.
• Complimentary Wi-Fi in the guest room.

The special nightly rate will also be honored three (3) days prior to and three (3) days after the event, pending availability.

Due to the lateness of the 2020 Father’s Day, our LCS dates happens to fall on the same weekend as the 38th Annual Dublin, OH Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show. The Arthritis Foundation show is an extremely large 3-day car show close to the same area of Dublin as our host hotel. Due to this, hotels in the Dublin area will be extremely hard to get the closer we get to our dates. It is highly recommended that you reserve your hotel room sooner than later.

Serial #001 of the FFR 25th Anniversary Kits

The build begins for the 2020 raffle car. The kit was picked up this weekend and the building process has begun.

Dave Smith has promised to help us sell 25,000 tickets for this year's raffle car. This is a nice number and if this happens it will be around twice the best year we have ever had for ticket sales.

Raffle tickets will be available on-line when our website goes live around the first of November.

Counting on someone from the forum to be the lucky winner this year. Hope, hope!

Roy

I just booked a room at the Mariott and they are filling up FAST! So fast that all of the 2 bed rooms are gone.

This isn't looking like a viable choice for a single event hotel like last year if the rooms are all booked 9 months in advance and before the event registration has even begun however there are some others in the area that appear to be within walking distance of the Mariott:

Drury Inn & Suites
6170 Parkcenter Circle
Dublin, OH 43017
(614) 798-8802

Hyatt Place Columbus/Dublin
6161 Parkcenter Circle
Dublin, OH 43017
(614) 799-1913

LaQuinta Inn by Wyndham Dublin
6145 Parkcenter Circle
Dublin, OH 43017
(614) 792-8300

Homewood Suites by Hilton Columbus-Dublin
5300 Parkcenter Ave.
Dublin, OH 43017
(614) 791-8675

I have no idea if OCC has spoken with them or negotiated rates.

Good luck,

2020 lcs host hotel

For the 2020 LCS, we have the same number of rooms in our LCS room block out as last year. In fact, the Marriott has more total rooms overall than did the Crown Plaza. We have spent a lot of time an effort into finding another hotel that will allow everyone to stay in the same hotel and enjoy the comradery of all of our Cobra loving friends. The Marriott should work out much better than the Crown Plaza did for our 2019 LCS.

The reason for the high number of reservations at this time is that the locals know how the Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show fills up the Dublin area hotels and have reserved their rooms early.

That is why it was suggested that everyone on the forums book their rooms ASAP at (614) 791-1000 or on-line by clicking going to https://www.marriott.com/event-reser...P&app=resvlink.

Done.

FYI: The block of rooms is reserved for 25-27, and to get the same rate for an early arrival, they had to do an over ride, so doing it online was not possible.

FFR 3319. On the road since 2002 with a lot of upgrades

2020 LCS Host Hotel

Like last year with the Crowne Plaza, we may occasionally have a problem with the Marriott and a few reservations. If anyone does experience a problem in getting the Marriott reservation they would like, please contact us at [email protected] and let us see if we are able to solve the problem.

For the 2020 LCS, we have the same number of rooms in our LCS room block out as last year. In fact, the Marriott has more total rooms overall than did the Crown Plaza. So far, 40 individuals have made reservations.

We have spent a lot of time an effort into finding another hotel that will allow everyone to stay in the same hotel and enjoy the comradery of all of our Cobra loving friends. We do hope everyone stays at the Marriott as it should work out much better than the Crown Plaza did for our 2019 LCS.

The reason for the high number of reservations at this time is that the locals know how the Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show fills up the Dublin area hotels and have reserved their rooms early.

That is why it was suggested that everyone on the forums book their rooms ASAP at (614) 791-1000 or on-line by clicking https://www.marriott.com/event-reser...P&app=resvlink.

2020 London Cobra Show Registration

The LCS website is ready for you to register for the 2020 London Cobra Show. This will be the 20th anniversary of the Double Venom Spring Fling/London Cobra Show or DVSF/LCS. The 2020 LCS is shaping up to be the best one yet, great times and friendships, a Cobra raffle, popular autocross, exciting cruises, and tours, as well as some great, nationally known speakers - all to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Information on Mid-Ohio track days will be available later.

Quite a few individuals that have never been to an LCS have indicated they will be attending this year, as well as several “old-timers” from the early days of DVSF/LCS. It is going to be fun and you don’t want to miss the 2020 show. If you have never been to LCS, then this is the one you need to attend.

When registering for the show, don’t forget to also register for your hotel as well. When making your hotel reservation, please request the London Cobra Show nightly rate of $119.00 plus tax. Please note that this rate applies until our block of rooms has been reserved or through June 3, 2020, whichever comes first, after that time, the special rate will no longer apply and the rate will be whatever the hotel has available. Please reserve your room early so that you will not be disappointed by having to pay a higher nightly rate or to stay at a different hotel.

To register, go to www.londoncobrashow.com

Hope to see you in June.

Thumbs down 2020 london cobra show registration

It seems we have some type of problem with our online store that will not recognize credit cards. We will let everyone know when the problem is solved, so you may register for the show.

The “problem” with the London Cobra Show’s website has been found and corrected and is now working correctly.

To visit the website, please go to https://londoncobrashow.com/ where you may take a chance on winning Serial #1 of FFR’s 25th anniversary MK IV Roadsters and/or sign up for the 20th anniversary of the DVSF/LCS – it is shaping up to be the best one yet.
